Spring Pink – A Lipcote Lipstick Review

November 4, 2015


Brand Name: Clinique High Impact Lip Colour

Colour: Rosette

Price: £16.00

Lipcote Rating: 3.9 / 5

Clinique has a huge presence in the skincare and cosmetics arena, marketing themselves as the first dermatologist-developed cosmetics brand. They are known for innovative skincare formulas, and colour ranges that have added benefits.

We chose Rosette to try, a sweet mid-pink shade. On first application, its slightly sheer – not what we were expecting from a lipstick named ‘High Impact’. But the pigment is very buildable, and with another couple of layers we were able to get a bolder, brighter intensity. This makes this lippie perfect for those who want to try colour, but are afraid! In true Clinique style, this delivers a satisfying dose of colour, but also provides moisturising care and a stable SPF 15 – great to fit into the new generation of cosmetics which not only deliver on appearance, but on skincare benefits as well, referred to in the beauty industry as ‘actives’. The silver casing is sleek and modern, and its heavy weight and pleasing ‘click’ shut are a subtle reminder that this is a high-end product! The fragrance free formula is refreshing to use, and lets the vanilla in our Lipcote really shine through!

Overall we like this lipstick a lot, although colour fiends might be disappointed with the lack of rich, bold shades in the range. For colour-shy girls however, it’s perfect for dipping-your-toe into the coloured lips look, without having to jump in at the deep end!
